Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 6, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday, September LETHBRIDGE Interpreting the News Isolation of Cuba nears end WASHINGTON (CP) The 10-year-long isolation of Cuba from its Western Hemisphere neighbors is drawing steadily toward a close, with what appears to be the resigned bless- ing of President Ford. Ford's public comments on the issue have been deliberate- ly cautious. He has said the United States, acting "in con- cert with" Latin-American allies, will be ready to change its policy if Fidel Castro's regime also changes. However mild the statement was on its face, it was seen by Latin diplomats here as a distinct about-face from the unfor- giving hostility of former president Richard Nixon. It has given new life to the manoeuvres and intrigues at the Washington headquarters of the Organization of American States Among those countries favoring an end to the diplomatic and economic boycott of Cuba, there is growing certainty that the boycott's days are numbered. There is also widespread satisfaction among the Latins with Ford's choice this week of William Rogers as the top Latin-American specialist in the state department. A liberal Democrat and an important policy-maker on Latin affairs under presidents Kennedy and Johnson, the 47- year-old Rogers was later an adviser to both Robert Kennedy and Senator George men who were widely admired in South America. Rogers's nomination has been welcomed as well in the state department, whose staff sees him as a knowledgeable expert and provocative thinker. Besides pressing for more American flexibility toward Cuba, Rogers can be expected to seek greater continuity and initiative from the U.S. toward its South American and Caribbean the on-again, off-again at- titudes that have characterized American policy under a succession 6f recent presidents. The Cuban issue represents an early opportunity for Presi- dent Ford to demonstrate a clean break with his predeces- sor in foreign policy. Richard Nixon's chief successes were in foreign affairs, where his bold initiatives with China and the Soviet Union have left an indelible mark. But Nixon had a blind spot on Cuba. Influenced by his close friend Bebe Rebozo and others in the fiercely anti-Castro community of Cuban exiles in the U.S., he balked at ending the isolation of Cuba despite the growing trend in Latin America toward restoring relations with the Communist-run island. Cuba has been under boycott since 1964, when her attempts to export revolution to Venezuela and elsewhere provoked the OAS to retaliate. In 1972, a group of Latin states tried to get the boycott revoked by the OAS and were defeated, but the movement has since gathered steam. Seven Latin countries have already restored diplomatic relations with Havana in defiance of OAS resolutions. Others are ready to do so once a way is found to end the boycott without alienating those as Brazil, Chile, Bolivia and the Central American remain large- ly suspicious or hostile toward Castro. Latin diplomatic sources expect a special committee of the OAS to be set up later this month to investigate the situ- ation. By late November, they believe the OAS foreign minis- ters will be ready to approve ending the boycott. By then, too, the mid-term U.S. elections will be past. The anti-Castro vote, which is particularly strong in Florida, will no longer be a serious factor for the Ford administration as it decides how the U.S. will vote on the issue.

WASHINGTON (AP) In the waning days of Richard Nixon's presidency, his family concluded it would be useless to fight impeachment to the bitter, predictable end, says David Eisenhower, Nixon's son-in-law. "Whatever the administra- tion stood to gain historically by narrowing the charges against it and making the Con- stitution function it stood to lose by putting the country through what it was going to go he said. In an interview three weeks after Nixon surrendered the presidency. Eisenhower, 26, discussed the family's reac- tion to the politically fatal June 23 tape recordings and Nixon's decision to resign. He also said it would be a good idea if Nixon ran again for public office. "He's been defensive... he's been bitter. He's been all the rest in the last year and a Eisenhower said. "But in calmer times under different circumstances, the man has a heck of a lot to contribute. "If he went into the Senate, I think it would be a good idea But I'm positive he's not thinking about it now." Eisenhower said he did not know the status of Nixon's mental and physical health, but the former president telephones his daughter Julie almost every other day and doesn't seem depressed. However, the young law stu- dent, who also is grandson of the late president Dwight D. Eisenhower, added: "Anyone who makes public life a career and one way or another that career ends, especially a president... I think there's got Nixon was reluctant to tell contents of the June 23 tapes, to be a letdown." his family about the damaging Eisenhower said.
